Weekly menus will be posted online this year for review and family planning.

These applications may also be completed and submitted at campus locations.

Families are encouraged to use the school district’s prepayment options for meals, including an online payment option. Cashiers accept cash or checks on site, but families may also use a credit or debit card to pay for meals online, or pay by using a traditional checking account.

To access the online payment system or submit applications, please visit the district’s Child Nutrition Services website at and follow payment directions.
